The Meaning of the LED Lights On the ADC-V723
In this video, Joe from Alarm Grid talks about the LED lights on the Alarm.com ADC-V723 Outdoor Security Camera. The ADC-V723 is the flagship outdoor camera from Alarm.com. It offers 1080p recording capabilities, High Dynamic Range (HDR), a 117° field of view and an IR night vision range of 40 feet.
The LED lights on the ADC-V723 Camera are designed to quickly inform the user of the device's current status. By checking the camera's LED lights, the user can get a quick understanding of the device's current status, without having to access Alarm.com for more information. Taking a quick look at the camera's LED is much more convenient than having to open the Alarm.com Mobile App or website to see what is going on with the camera. As long as the camera remains powered on and connected with the WIFI network, then there should not be any problems or issues. Please note that this camera can connect with a 2.4 GHz or a 5 GHz WIFI network. It cannot utilize a hardwired ethernet connection for IP network connectivity.
The most common light you should see on the ADC-V723 is solid green. This means that the camera is powered on and connected with Alarm.com. If you see no LED light, then the camera is not powered on. If you see a flashing green LED light, then the camera is connected to a WIFI network, but not with the Alarm.com Servers. If you see a solid red LED light, then the camera is not connected to a WIFI network. If you see a flashing red LED light, then the camera is booting up. If you see a flashing blue LED light, then the camera is pairing with a network via WPS. If you see a flashing white LED light, then the camera is pairing with a network via an Access Point (AP). If you see a flashing green and red LED light, then the camera is performing a factory reset.
[MUSIC PLAYING] Hi, DIYers. Joe, from Alarm Grid. And today, we're going to talk about, what do the LEDs mean on an ADC-V723? On the front of this camera, there is a light. And this light has different colored LEDs in it, and it's going to tell you different statuses that are currently occurring on the camera. This is the new ADC-V723. It's a great outdoor camera-- 10 ADP, works on 2.4 or 5 gigahertz Wi-Fi networks, 117 degree view. It's just great. Rated IP66, so it can set up in the rain, no problem. The thing with outdoor cameras though is that when they're mounted up on a wall or up on your house, it's hard to troubleshoot it because you have to get a ladder. You've got to put it up. If there's any weather, it's going to be a problem. And it's just a hassle. The light on the front of the camera is going to give you a clue as to what's going on with the camera. So at a glance, you'll be able to tell if it's connected to alarm.com, if it's connected to your local network, if it's having any other problems or connection problems. It just allows you to troubleshoot and diagnose something before having to break the ladder out and go up to fix the camera. Because many times, it may be an issue with the network or with alarm.com and not something wrong with the camera itself, which will save you the time from going up, looking at this, taking it down, and trying to fix the issue at the camera itself. Most alarm.com cameras do have this LED light, or an LED light on them, to give you an indicator of what's up with the camera. So, if you are curious if yours does, go and take a look at it. Or download the instruction manual-- check it out online-- to see what features your camera does have. Without having this camera connected to alarm.com, there's a few different LEDs that we can see right here. And I'm going to show them to you now. When I power the camera on, I'm actually going to get a flashing red light that tells me that the camera's booting up-- right there. So we know the camera's turning on. Another thing that the camera's going to do is it's going to flash white, which tells me it's in its Wi-Fi access mode. So it's waiting for something to happen to join a network-- right there. If I hold down the WPS button right here, I can get the light to turn blue. Now, it's in WPS mode. If I continue to hold the button down, it'll go back to Wi-Fi access mode. I think it's going to cycle once-- yeah. So we have our WPS mode. Now, it's going to go back to Wi-Fi access mode. And then, it'll flash red and green. Now, I know that the camera's going through a factory default. If the light is flashing red, that means it's connected to a local network, but it's not connected to alarm.com, yet. If it's flashing green, it means it's connected to a Wi-Fi network, but it's not connected to alarm.com. And if it's solid green, it means it's connected to your Wi-Fi network, and it's communicating with alarm.com. All these light indicators are going to be listed on the FAQ, so don't worry about memorizing them and keeping them in your head. If you just look at the page, you'll be able to see what's going on with your camera at a glance.
